Here’s my beef today. I am caught between what I should and ought to do and what I really want to do.
I should go to the gym, but what I want to do is lay on the hammock and read.
I should fold the laundry, sweep and mop, vacuum and dust, and scrub the bathroom, but what I really want to do is go outside and enjoy the sunshine with my family.
I have a list of “to-dos” and it conflicts with the desire to just have fun. I would love to be standing in the forest right now, or looking out at the ocean, or enjoying a picnic by a lake – anything but being in the house and facing chores!
I should watch what I eat, but I really could kill for a chocolate bar right now.
I should pay the bills, but I really want to go shopping for some totally unnecessary things.
So, what do I do? Do I do the things I should do, or do I do the things I want to do? Maybe I’ll find a way to do a little bit of both.
